Delta's Trent shop will be coming on-line soon and will help a little bit.


So in other words: a fix has been designed and approved. Parts are available. But the enigne shops simply do not have sufficient capacity to turn all those engines in short time frame.


PW100 I assure you I read every single post before I ask something, I was asking why that certain poster was replying “total rubbish” or “ false info” to the engine issue posts. Thats all. “Amazingly” you can see in my post that my reply quoted him;)

Speaking of grounded 787s, N783AV has been @ EZE since Jan 28th. It has now been moved to Aerolineas Argentinas hangar # 5 for an engine change.

And with a new engine under its left wing, N783AV left EZE on ferry at 05:26AM yesterday, destination BOG, after ~20 days grounded in Argentina, Work was carried out at AR's hangar # 5.

The aircraft re-entered commercial service that same day, leaving BOG as AV087, destination... EZE, where it arrived at 06:11 today with 240 paxs+crew.

What does DL have to do with 787-8 and RR engines? A plane DL has never taken and regreats. On a different note: I noticed you will inject DL in pretty much every topic you post regardless 8f its germain to topic.


If DL "regreated" not purchasing the 787 so much, they probably wouldn't have canceled NW's order for them in the first place, and if they really wanted it now, there's nothing stopping them from ordering it.

Except price. The deal that NW got on its order won't be repeated at this stage and I am positive if they tried to get that price, Boeing with such a huge back order would tell them to go pound sand. Not going to happen.
